A deranged stalker murdered podcast host Zohreh Sadeghi and her husband Mohammed Naseri in a murder-suicide at the £1 million house. Sadeghi was shot and killed Sunday night in her Redmond, Washington house by trucker Ramin Khodakaramezaei.
Khodakaramrezaei had stalked his victim for several months before he broke into her house in the Seattle suburb of Redmond through an open window at 1:45 am, police said. He shot Sadeghi and her husband, Mohammed Naseri, before turning his weapon on himself. Sadeghi’s mother managed to escape and called the police from a neighbor’s house.

Naseri’s wife Sadeghi hosted a podcast aimed at helping Farsi-speaking people find jobs in the tech industry. Khodakaramrezaei first came into contact with Sadeghi through the same show.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Naseri joined Amazon in January 2022 as a software engineer. He married Sadeghi in 2011. She worked as a software engineer who worked for Promontory MortgagePath after studying at the University of Washington Tacoma.
